We enjoyed a relaxing weekend break at the Pheasant, with excellent food and attentive staff. Our room was warm and comfortable and the bathroom well supplied with piping hot water and a lovely big bath, but oh the décor -both the bedroom and bathroom were in desperate need of refurbishment. Little things that took the edge of the visit

We recently stayed at The Pheasant recently after having dinner there on a previous visit to the area. The hotel exceeded all expectations - the room was lovely, the piping hot water in an extra-long bath divine and the staff friendly. The food was excellent - we enjoyed the full English breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner. I would recommend paying... More

Lovely place to stay in Bassenthwaite. The Staff were helpful and accommodating. and food lovely. Room nice but sadly bathroom and decor were very tired and in need of a upgrade. Otherwise would have been perfect.

Stayed for a long weekend. Room was comfortable, clean and warm. Beds very comfortable. Excellent bathroom with very good shower and copious hot water. Bar was atmospheric and the locals were keen to engage in conversation. We enjoyed the log fires. We ate in the bistro and the food was top quality, well presented and the waiting staff excellent.

Basics all perfect: Cleanliness, super plumbing, excellent full English brekky and quiet spot, but the Pheasant has loads more added value: relaxed while efficient friendly staff in all departments. A proper pub within its precincts with more 'olde worlde' character than 99% of British pubs plus good real ale (Try the 'Cumberland Corby'). The lounge areas have two roaring fires... More

We stayed here for two nights and had a really relaxing stay. The open fires gave a superb feel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the bistro both nights and had good food with reasonably priced wine. We used the passes for the spa and had a very nice afternoon in the pool, steam and... More

Stopped for lunch while heading north through the Lake District. The bar areas were old and rustic but staff were sometimes difficult to find as they seemed to be all busy getting ready for lunch. The lunch we had was good, nothing special and we were disappointed that we couldn't have a Devonshire tea - cakes etc not being available... More
